AGILE Conference 2020
The Association of Geographic Information Laboratories in Europe (AGILE) has held annual conferences focused on Geographical Information Science for more than two decades.
The 23rd AGILE conference will be held in Chania, Crete, Greece on 16-19 June, 2020. The theme of the conference is Geospatial Technologies: seeding the future.
The main topics for the 2020 conference include, among others: Space informatics, Big Spatial Data, Analysis and Visualization, Interoperability with Aerial and Satellite Platforms, Volunteered Geographic Information and Community Observatories, Socio-Economic Impact Assessment of GI, deep learning applications, disruptive GI technologies, as well as GIScience and Technology Education and Training. Contributors are encouraged to propose new themes, both for presentations and for workshops.
AGILE seeks to ensure that new perspectives on teaching and research in geographic information science are fully represented at the conference to help shape the future European research agenda in this field. This is also aligned with our conference theme, Geospatial Technologies: seeding the future, that emphasizes an interest in the development of novel solutions, modern data retrieval platforms and social integration according to the challenges that arise in our changing planet. In addition, we need to maximise the potential and synergies of modern data retrieval platforms such as unmanned remotely operating systems and operational satellite constellation such as Copernicus Sentinels for maximizing the investments made by both geospatial and Earth observation communities.
Reproducible Paper Guidelines
The 2019 AGILE Conference will be the first AGILE Conference to encourage researchers to follow common practices towards high transparency and reusability of AGILE conference submissions. The AGILE Reproducible Paper Guidelines provide clear instructions and checklists for authors and reviewers to increase reproducibility of scientific manuscripts.
Read the guidelines online at https://doi.org/10.17605/OSF.IO/CB7Z8
The guidelines include detailed information about rationale, motivation and vision of reproducible publications at AGILE Conferences. They also link numerous resources for detailed and specific practices, e.g. for social media data, personal data, or workflows in specific programming languages.
The process for conducting a review of the reproducibility of accepted manuscripts is currently being developed by the AGILE Initiative for Reproducible Papers ( https://o2r.info/reproducible-agile/initiative/ ). A public online discussion forum to support authors with the shift towards reproducible workflows is available at https://discourse.agile-online.org/c/reproducible.
